Internships in Germany
Stanford @ Charité Berlin: Women's Health in Comparative Perspective
The Berlin center of the Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) at Stanford University and the specialist group for gynecology at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin will be cooperating in the field of teaching and research from 2022.
The working group Tumor Bank Ovarian Cancer (AG TOC) of the Gynecological Tumor Center initially offers research internships for bachelor students who have previously taken courses at "Stanford in Berlin" and received a scholarship from the "Krupp Internship Program for Stanford Students in Germany." These internships are particularly suitable for students of biology and human biology, bio-chemistry and biomechanical engineering. As the program develops, we hope to offer a course in women’s health in the spring quarters of the Berlin BOSP center - specifically designed for prospective medical students in anticipation of their internships at Charité, but also open to qualified students who do not intend to do a subsequent internship.
As a pilot, BOSP-Berlin will offer a course on Ethics of Medicine in spring quarter 2024 by Faculty in Residence, Prof. Regina Casper. The first Charité Women’s Health intern — a student of biomechanical engineering – interned at the Charité in the summer of 2022.

The Krupp Internship Program
Students who participate in the Berlin Program may be eligible for placement in the "Krupp Internship Program for Stanford Students in Germany." This program allows students to deepen their understanding of Germany’s culture and people, by providing them with the opportunity to gain practical, professional experience through an internship at a German host institution. A grant from the program’s sponsor, the German Krupp Foundation, supports students with an ample monthly stipend to cover their housing, food, and other living expenses.
